The Band’s Robbie Robertson has released a new single from his forthcoming LP, Sinematic. It features Glen Hansard of Swell Season and it’s called “Dead End Kid.”
Robertson recalls that it’s all about how he wanted to make it and he told the people around him coming up, but “everyone was like, that’s never going to happen. You’re a dead end kid. Because my relatives were First Nation people and Jewish gangsters, it was assumed my dreams were going to explode. I found strength in overcoming that disbelief.”

“Dead End Kid” is the second single he’s released lately and comes after “Once Were Brothers.”
